Well, my opinion probably won't be very popular (!), but I sympathize with the farmers. If they can't get a price that is high enough to pay for the cost of harvesting and transporting their crop, it should be their choice what to do with it. I do applaud the one farm that allowed local residents and food banks to come and pick the berries, rather than waste them.
